(Property / Civil law)
SLC operated a cement plant in a municipality under a special statute.  In 1994, residents living near the plant filed a class action, complaining that the plant caused abnormal or excessive disturbances in the neighbourhood.  The Court found that a section of the Civil Code of Quebec providing for no-fault liability applied in this case, and restored the trial judge's award of damages.
Majority/Dissent: 6/0
